Downstream processing is the division of harvesting the insoluble elements from the cell culture which can be done through: Downstream processing -Floatation The gas is introduced in the cell culture and the solid particles get absorbed in the gas bubbles and rise to form a

Downstream processing filtration Downstream processing filtration is used at several stages in downstream processing of the bioreactor as well as purification of water and other processing fluids e.g. sanitizing agent. the majority of purification types fall under Capture, intermediate purification and polishing. These are: Microfiltration.

Peptide Antibiotics – broad spectrum

These peptides are potent, broad spectrum antibiotics which demonstrate potential to be novel therapeutic agents. They are also called Host Defense peptides (HDP). They fall into two  categories:- Non ribosomally synthesized peptides ribosomally synthesized peptides Nonribosomally Synthesized Peptides Peptides derived from amino acidscontaining two or


Steps of Downstream Processing

Downstream processing is the purification of pharmaceutical products fromnatural source, for example plant and animal tissue. The following are stages followed in the processing   Stage one: removal of insoluble (solid and liquid separation) This step involves separation of whole cells that is cell biomass

What is Synthetic Organic Chemistry

What is the work of doing synthetic organic chemistry? It aimed to build-up complex molecular structure from different smaller molecules producing synthetic organic compounds. It started way back in 1820s when chemist Friedrich Wohler discovered that urea can be made even if it wasn’t produced

A Methodological Approach to Plant Extraction

When someone speaks about plant extraction, he/she speaks about the various active substances and ingredients that were removed from various parts of the plant This is most oftenly done with the help of solvents that treat plants. Use of Plant Extraction Many people find plant
